PDI Inspections-pre-delivery inspection 

Question: I am purchasing a new home, do I need an Inspection?

Answer: Yes you do!!

Even new construction has defects, such as missing insulation, electrical and plumbing defects. I take the guess work away by providing a detailed PDI (Pre-Delivery Inspection), 30 Day, One Year, and Two Year Inspections for new homes. 

Loft/condominium conversions 

The current Tarion warranty program only provides protection for new homes, and thus conversion projects, primarily lofts, and condominiums, even if consisting of a complete building overhaul, do not qualify for statutory coverage.Such projects may include former commercial properties, hospitality buildings such as hotels, apartments and institutional buildings, such as schools and hospitals. Even conversions that were previously residential cannot be protected under the current rules.

The good news is Tarion Warranty Corporation, regulator for the new home building industry in Ontario, is exploring the feasibility of providing coverage for condominium conversions. The decision was announced at the private corporation's Annual Public Meeting in Toronto on April 25, 2013.

For now, for condominium  conversions, the warranty is typically offered by the builder. 

Is a PDI different for condominium owners?

For condominium owners, the systems in your unit may be covered under the common elements warranty, and may not be part of the unit PDI. The condominium Board of Directors will complete a PDI with the builder for all of the common elements. However, it is your responsibility to make note of damaged, incomplete or missing items, or anything not operating properly in your unit, and have these items noted on your unit's PDI Form.

Your Pre-Delivery Inspection (PDI)

Before you take possession of your new home or condominium, your builder is required to conduct a pre-delivery inspection, or PDI. During the PDI, it is very important to identify any items that are damaged, missing, incomplete or not operating properly and have these conditions noted on the PDI Form.

Your builder is required to present you with a copy of the Homeowner Information Package at the PDI (unless it was presented to you by your builder at an earlier date). The Package contains important information regarding warranty coverage.

This section explains the PDI and lets you know what you can expect from the inspection. You can also print a copy of the PDI Check list to help you ensure your PDI is thorough and complete.

 

What is a PDI Form?

The PDI Form is an important record used to document the conditions in your home as they existed before you moved in. It is not a request for warranty service.

 

During the PDI the builder's representative will fill in the form, but it is your responsibility to have anything you find in your home that is incomplete, damaged, missing or not operating properly - as well as any unauthorized substitutions - noted on the PDI Form before you sign it.

  

What if I forget to list a problem during the PDI?

 

You do not automatically lose warranty coverage if a problem is not listed on the PDI Form, but if the problem is a damaged or missing item, it will be more difficult to establish that the condition existed before you moved in. If any PDI Items are not corrected by the time you move in, you should list these items on your 30-Day Form.
